To the Memory of Lieutenant Nathaniel Sherman
Of the city of New York, adjutant 6th regiment United States Infantry, who died at Sacketts Harbour (during the expedition against York) of a fever, occasioned by excessive fatigue on the march of that regiment from Plattsburg. It is due to the merits of this promising young officer to say, that his extreme mortification at being unable to proceed with his regiment was the cause of a relapse in the disorder, which suddenly terminated his existence.
